Kyle Massey is speaking out after being the victim of an inappropriate hoax on Twitter.

Rumors circulated on the social media site over the weekend claiming that the "That's So Raven" star, 21, was dying of cancer. Although Massey does not know where the false report started, he has released a statement confirming that he is not terminally ill.

“We are not sure where this rumor started, but we would like to put a stop to it immediately,” his rep for the "Dancing With the Stars" alum tells JustJared.com. “This is a very serious disease and he’s upset that someone would make light of such a serious subject. He has been affected personally from the disease as he has had family members who have passed away from cancer.”

The good news is, this story is untrue.
